The Langlands site is a hive of activity with construction of the inner-city hotel now underway.

Building consent for stage one of the ILT’s $40 million development was received prior to Christmas, enabling piling and foundation work to begin on January 6.

ILT chairman Alan Dennis said contractor Leighs Construction was already making good progress.

“It feels great to see the foundations underway and there’s a real sense of anticipation given what is going to evolve from there,” he said.

“One of the most exciting developments for Invercargill will emerge from the ground up once this initial phase is complete.”

ILT chief executive Chris Ramsay said the system being used would result in 115 piles being screwed into place. A tower crane will also be erected onsite in the next few weeks.

“This development is proving a real talking point and we know people are interested to watch as it all takes shape,” he said.

“We’re catering for that curiosity with viewing windows so our community can witness this process from go to woah. A build of this magnitude will be fascinating.”

Scheduled for completion in late 2021, construction of the hotel will comprise two stages with the first featuring 80 guest rooms. With a focus on future-proofing, an additional 40 rooms would be added when demand warranted it.

A new landmark on the cityscape, The Langlands will feature 4.5-star quality accommodation, conference facilities and a trendy top floor function space along with eateries and bars at ground level connected by a covered laneway.
